I ordered this card from Amazon, specifically because it was the right card at the right price. Check out pcper.com and search HD 7850 review to see how this card stacks up against the competition, and you will get a more complete picture (no pun intended).

But to summarize: at $250, this card destroys the Nvidia GTX 560ti ($230) and runs just short of the GTX 570 ($300-330) unless you overclock. The figures I'm using are valid at time of purchase. You can assume the lowest possible price either at Amazon or at a competitor.

Further info.

Pros:

1. power consumption. This card only draws about 130W on ONE 6-pin PCIe power cord, which is ridiculously low for its capabilities. A PCIe slot already provides a bit more than 70W, so the draw on the power supply is minimal. This means you can upgrade without spending a lot on a power supply (minimum 500W). The 570 needs either 2 PCIe 6-pins or a 6 and a 6+2 with 550w - 600w minimum power supply, depending on sub-manufacturer.

2. temperature. The card only runs about 60 C at load, which is also very low, and this means you don't have to worry as much about case performance to maintain temperature within operating limits. This doesn't mean you can leave your case a mess, but it does mean that you don't have to spend serious cash to get good airflow. Good cooling = longer life.

3. capabilities. The HD 7850 can maintain a good to great FPS (frames per second) on the highest settings on your favorite directx 11 games. This is the programming platform for 3D gaming, and at the time of review, it is the most current form of 3D platforming. As an estimation, this card should be able to run a good FPS well into the future. Best guess is 2 years.

Last Update: Just wanted to add- if you select a HDTV resolution (720p/1080i/1080p) in CCC, the audio will NOT drop out. Unfortunately for me, my LCD's native resolution is 1360x768 so I have to choose that resolution which is considered a BASIC resolution in CCC. For any Basic resolution, the audio will cut out. One workaround would be to run a digital coax/optical from my MOBO to the receiver, but this adds an extra cable lol. I'm still just using my 5770 since I'm having a hard time justifying the price of a 6950 since you can find a 7850 for the same price. I'm holding out for the hope that AMD will release a driver fix, in which case I would repurchase the 7850. Or if Amazon would put out a deal on the LG 55LM7600, I would get that, rebuy this card, run 1080p, and call it a day.

Update 2: Well my new receiver came, Denon 2312CI, and unfortunately that receiver experiences the same issue with the Sapphire 7850 as my Onkyo did, confirmed by testing in 2 different computers. My old Radeon 5770 still works perfectly in both computers and with both receivers. I've come to the conclusion, that this 7850, at least the 2 particular Sapphire 7850 cards I received, does not smoothly stream audio to a receiver over HDMI without cutting out every now and then.

Update: I also tried Catalyst 12.6 beta, a new HDMI cable, and a different input on my receiver. I tried everything except hooking the 7850 straight up to my LCD and using my LCD's speakers. This is what I just did and so far, 10 songs, I don't think I've heard it skip, unless it happens so fast that I'm not picking up on it. On the Onkyo receiver, when it would skip, the no audio source would show up for a second while the receiver looked for the audio.

Everyone once in a while one of those video cards come out that can overclock like mad and hit much above what it's supposed to..

At stock 7850 is actually pretty weak for a $250 card considering its next-gen. It's better than the somewhat cheaper geforce 560Ti but not by much. And it's slightly slower than 570. To make things worse it's not really much better than the previous gen Radeon 6950.

But the thing is amd has deliberately underclocked the 7850. That is because clock for clock the 7850 is only about 5% slower than the 7870. And the 7870 is a $300+ card. Surely, they couldn't allow the 7850 to have the higher 7870 clocks.

Here's the deal if you overclock this card it would pretty much lay to waste most video cards this side of the gtx580. And here's why:
1. 7850 scales VERY linearly with clock. That means if you overclock by 20% your real-world performance in games jumps by 20%.
2. 1050mhz (22% overclock) is pretty much guaranteed. There's not a single 7850 on the internet that couldn't do 1050 mhz.
3. I got one of the bad samples and ended up with a "bad" overclock of 1100 mhz 24/7 stable. Along with memory over clocks, i get 25-30% increase in frame rates compared to stock.
4. At those speeds the 7850 sails past the 570 and gives the 580 a run for its money. Its just unfair to compare it to the 560 Ti now.

A lot (but NOT all) of cards hit 1200 mhz. Beyond that the scaling is less linear. From 1200 mhz you'll only get a few fps for a huge increase in temps/power.

Simply put overclocked this really is the best video card at $250. If you don't you're throwing your money away. And there's no reason why you shouldn't.

If you're not overclocking you're missing out on 30% FREE performance. Please my friend, read up on overclocking and make the best of your money!
